…but if you do, oh well, it’s not the end of the world.
A couple of my friends pointed out to me yesterday, that I had a couple of typos in my blog entry… OMG! :O Big deal…
So, this post is about typos. How important is it to proofread your stuff? It’s very important. You should always proofread you resume, ass, cover letter etc. Have someone take a look at them before sending them.
This is the think, I have spoken to many recruters and hiring managers and some of them are really wierd about these things. Some of them say: “If you mised an “s” here or there, your resume will be automatically trashed”. That’s kinda crazy and somewhat unrealistic. I would say, if you missed an “s”, fix it then move on, it really isn’t the end of the world. There are more important things hiring managers are looking for, if your a good candidate they will probably let that go, but don’t take my word for it. Do profread.
Hey here’s a blog entry by a professional talking about typos, read it, it’s fun: http://blog.penelopetrunk.com/2006/10/03/you-sent-your-resume-with-a-typo-get…
Here is an examples of typos that you just can’t make when you start working.
